Richmond’s 200th Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the single largest grassroots fundraising event so far. Thanks to local residents Gilles and Louise Dallaire for volunteering to create, organize and executive the first Richmond Open Golf Tournament in support of our bicentennial celebrations, over $10,000 were raised on Monday August 14.
We also thank all of our sponsors, donors, golfers and especially our volunteers who helped make the day a great success.
Tom and Janet, proprietors of Jabulani Winery, presented a cheque to the Richmond Village Association for $717.00 at their South African dinner event on August 4, 2017. They were thrilled to have sold all 717 bottles of the 1818 wine they produced in such a short time. In Janet’s words “they flew off the shelf”. A generous donation to the 200th of $1.00 from each bottle. Now that is community spirit!
A very special thank you to all the participants and attendees who made A Taste of Richmond a resounding success! The sold out event shone a light on the great variety of cuisine we have right here in Richmond. The funds raised will help put on a great celebration for Richmond’s 200th Anniversary.
Thank you to our Vendor Participants:

We would also like to thank all those who donated items for the silent auction.
Richmond’s own, local, Jabulani Vineyard and Winery has bottled a commemorative white wine named Richmond 1818 in support of Richmond’s bicentennial. A dollar from the sale of each bottle is donated to the celebration. To order contact jabulani.ca directly.
“This is Richmond’s birthday wine to celebrate 200 years. Vinted from grapes grown in Richmond Ontario’s own local vineyard and winery, it has floral characteristics of honeysuckle and citrus, with tastes of gooseberry and apple on the palate ending with a crisp lemon finish.
Celebrate Always!”……notes by the wine maker, Tom Moul.
